Ok then, why was it that after many people went to that particular post and tried to view the attached picture, then had all the same problems? Slow to never loading pictures, avtars, banners, web pages.............and so on. All immediately after looking at this one topic?? Call it a virus or not, something was there. Plain and simple. Topic was deleted, things are working fine now.
Nuff said.

I had no problem all day. After seeing many other complaints I followed some bright advice and looked at that thread.After that I could not get pics even on other sites.

Figured it out last night. Something in that thread corrupts a part of IE 6. After that thread corrupted your browser untill you reboot any page with graphics on it would fail to load completely. Myself and several other people last night confirmed that it was that thread that caused the problem. Probably a glitch in part of IE 6 that was brought to light.

Heres the thread where we figured it out lastnight. http://offshoreonly.com/forums/showt...threadid=48357

Without having seen the results it is hard to speculate but my best guess would be the post had a scripting error that affected your browser settings causing the slow/no response. Rebooting cleared the setting. The script error may have been a glitch in the forum resizing software or any one of a million other possibilities. If you use IE6 make certain you stay current with Microsoft's updates (Tools menu:Windows Update). I use IE6 and had no problems related to the thread and imagine it is because my computers are all up to date.
